I have an xps m1530 and ever since I got it I've had nothing but problems with it.
I havent even had it for a year and I am pretty careful with it as I got it as a present for my birthday.
Main problems I have had are:
Now it may sound like some of these problems are caused by me not taking care of my laptop but this should not happen. I shouldn't have had this many problems in less than a year of having the computer.
I know I can't get it replaced or get any money back for it, which means I will have to put up with a broken laptop untill I can get the money to buy a new non dell computer. I will not be buying from dell again in the future, I was suppose to be getting this laptop so that I could take it with me, but I don't think it can last till then.
Sorry if this post isn't very helpful and just a rant from an angry teenager who really should have checked up more or the reputation of dell before buying.
Some of these problems are indeed caused by system abuse - and no notebook will stand up to that. The rest are warranty items. If you still have a warranty, call Dell - if not, and you do replace the system, you should very seriously consider an accidental damage coverage plan -- or you'll be in the same situation with your next notebook.
